brown and folks like that and get to the 60 threshold and break the filibuster and if he was able to do that and it went to the house floor, there's no doubt it would pass and probably get enough republicans at the end of the day. the question is a, would he be able to break the filibuster in the senate, we don't know if that would happen. would boehner put it on the house floor and he said from day one, any plan he would like to see the majority and the republicans in the house move forward. if it were to go to the house i am very confident from conversations i've had that it would pass. >> nbc's luke russert. always appreciate the insights. >> nbc news senior political editor mike murray also digging this joining me live. president obama using the bully pulpit of his office to put pressure on congress.

senator scott brown out of massachusetts leaking some details what people are expecting the white house to be sending to both sides, democrats and republicans on the hill. do you think that what the president's going to send is something that john boehner can sell to his caucus? >> it needs to be. look there has to be more savings. what the president has talked about is more revenue but the concern is, that if the revenue goes to more spending you haven't solved the deficit and the debt. the real secret to getting this thing working is getting economic growth that generates revenue rather than higher taxes. those are elements that we need to get a deal that works and that's why we think there's chance here if the president will come back with some of those savings in his proposal. adam: but here's, we had an economist on yesterday who has no skin in this game politically which gives her credibility to what she had to say. she said the most dangerous thing we could do to the economic recovery is raise taxes. tte president clearly will not give on that point. he is going to raise taxes. i
